My cousin was part of the team that created Triples; we got sent a box at some point in the development process - it was probably after it was already test marketing in some part of the country, as it looked like a finished product. I remember, as a pre-teen or early teenager, telling my mom "this tastes like stale rice krispies," and that first version was definitely aimed at grownups ("yuppie-chow.") By the time the product was available in NY on retail shelves, they'd added some more sugar, and it tasted OK.

I bet General Mills could bring back Triples sooner or later.

Since General Mills brought back French Toast Crunch, maybe General Mills will bring back Clusters, Triples, Wheaties Honey Gold, original Oatmeal Crisp, Oatmeal Raisin Crisp & Multi Bran Chex for a whole new generation of cereal lovers and fans.

Found a recipe from the Triples cereal box GM used to make... Peanut Butter-Chocolate squares. This was a favorite with my son. I was wondering what cereal would be the best to make it with today since GM doesn't make Triples today.

This was my favorite cereal growing up. I remembered it when I just bought a box of 'Crispy Rice' by 'American Breakfast' from Dollar Tree. It has the same level of sweetness and same texture, but it doesn't have the other two grains. I'd love it if someone would make Triples again.

Triples was great until they 'improved' it. Before General Mills stopped making it, they kind of ruined it by making it more air puffed. It wasn't as crispy as it had been and I stopped eating it.

I have been looking for this cereal for years and today my search has come to a sad end as I realize that this cereal is no longer made. (Sad face.)

Couldn't remember the name for the longest time. Triples and Crispix were staple cereals at my grandma's breakfast table. Crispix is still made and I love it but I miss Triples!

I tried Honey Kix for the first time and the taste reminded me of this. I had only a vague memory from my childhood of a teal box and tri-colored cereal. Thanks to Google, I was able to put a name to this delicious cereal from a long forgotten memory! I am searching high and low with no luck so if anyone has come across it please post for those of us also craving another taste! Until then, we'll just have to write GM to start production again! However for those of you looking for something in the meantime, GM Honey Kix are a very close match to the taste of Triples - enough so that trying them triggered the memory of these. And I had to have been like 5 the last time I had them! That being said, they must taste extremely similar because until now I hadn't a thought or care about them!

My sis and I have been wanting to find this cereal. We remember it when we were kids. We LOVED it so much, and it tastes so good. We found out it was discontinued and that made us sad. Please bring it back.

I couldn't remember the name of this cereal for so long so I went through the a-z of cereals on Wikipedia. T is so far down the list. I craved this cereal for years without knowing the name and it's long gone from shelves.

Bring back Triples. It is way better than Multi-Grain Cheerios. Why did General Mills stop producing this AWESOME cereal? WHY?

I absolutely loved this cereal and ate it all the time. It had a delicious hint of brown sugar mixed with rice and corn. Far superior to Rice Krispies and the puffs stayed crunchy and didn't get soggy. I was dismayed when I could no longer find it at any store and have missed it ever since. Please General Mills bring back Triples.

This was actually a very good cereal. The only problem taste wise was one type had a slightly odd taste and the other an even order.

Each type brought a different taste. When the three combined it came out a little sweet, a little buttery, and a little bit of that heard to describe nut taste you get from things like Grape-Nuts. The cereal was some how not very suseptible to sogginess. The pieces were a little larger then Rice Krispies, just enough you could snatch a little and eat it dry but not very well ( just not the perfect shape for that).

Mostly the negatives were the advertisement. This obviously was not Rice Krispies, it was something different and they should have been proud of it. There was nothing all that appealing in ads to make any target interested at all. Not even a good enough " This is healthy and it's not sugar coated". It obviously didn't have a Mascot or anything to draw in kids, but it was good enough that if a child took a bite ( dry or in milk) they would containue eatting on their own.

I'm going to give this a 3 because the ads were just that damageing. Something was a little off in the taste that would need to be addressed as well (probably from the baking process). If they bring this back, I would recommend you give it a try.

This was one of my most favorite childhood memories. Going to New York and sitting down with my grandma with a bowl of Triples. They need to bring this back!
